Coffee Cookies!

The original recipe was found at Chickens in the Road here.  You can find LOTS of good thing on this site.  Most of my new recipes come from the forum – Check it out!!  Here is my version of these cookies, I made a few modifications mostly because we don’t keep a large pantry and I like coffee flavor a lot.  Boy are they good,  YUM!!


2 1/2 T  instant coffee crystals
1 1/2 T  hazel nut creamer *

1 c  butter
2/3 c  sugar
2/3 c  brown sugar

1 t  baking soda
1/4 t  salt
1  egg
1 1/2 t  vanilla

2 1/4 c  flour

3 T  coco powder
2 1/2 T hazel nut creamer *

1/4 c  chocolate chips  (optional)

* The original recipe called for cream or half and half – but I never have any.  The coffee creamer worked great as an alternative!

    • dissolve coffee in 1 1/2 T of creamer
    • in mixer, cream butter with sugar and brown sugar
    • add coffee mixture, soda, salt, egg and vanilla
    • mix in flour slowly
    • divide dough in half
    • add coco powder and creamer to one half
    • add chocolate chips to other half
    • place a small drop of each dough together on cookie sheet
    • bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees

NOTE:   There are only 2 of us here now, and instead of baking all of this recipe, I baked 2 small sheets then wrapped the rest into 2 rolls and refrigerate for later in the week.
